… and I can't stop …

Vids of recent solar flares and coronal mass ejections from sunspot AR 2734. Electronic interference is ongoing! Atmospheric interaction due in a few days!

Look for Northern Lights to be brighter and visible further south?

Yes. We're already getting some of that with the atmospheric condensing we have seen based on the recent lack of sunspots facing us and some side barfing by the sun. When this coronal ejection hits, we should get some pretty lights … more specific data as we get closer to crossing its path.

Wow! eto sounds positively scientific!

Stryderg, where's the bit about placing your head between your kness and kissing your arse goodbye?

Oh, it won't be that bad. Without the precautions shown above, you will just end up with rather nasty sun burn, 4th degree… probably.

I cheated. It's part of what I do for a living, so I have a few ins.

Plus, as well as needing to understand atmospheric effects, the math as science of sunspots is elegant and interesting. Then add in that magnitude of a CE being 10 times the size of our planet is just a staggering concept. And, the visuals (especially UV and X-Ray) of the different radiation layers are visually beautiful. It's kind of a trifecta.

NOAA has the prediction for this CE up now, in the lower left of one of their space weather dashboards.

Northern Finland, Norway and Sweden. Maybe Northern Scotland. Iceland and Southern Greenland, then C-A-N-A-D-A! (maybe Detroit, too!)

OK, now we've got eto speaking in tongues!!!

De plus, en comprendre les effets de l'atmosphère, les mathématiques en tant que science des taches solaires sont élégantes et intéressantes. Puis, ajouter que la magnitude d'une CE étant dix fois plus grande que notre planète n'est qu'un concept renversant. Finalment, les éléments visuels (en particulier les rayons UV et les rayons X) des différentes couches de rayonnement sont magnifiques. C'est une trifecta de sorte.
